What an amazing place. Between Mikro and Megalo Papigo.

Between the two settlements of Papigo the stream of Rogovo flows. The erosion of the water has shaped many round concavities resembling small lakes. These are named “ovires” by the locals. In the two biggest of them a wall has been constructed to retain water. In the summer the locals and the visitors swim in its cold waters.

They are holes in the limestone rocks which were created by the movement of the waters of the stream Rogovo. This natural phenomenon which the locals take advantage by barring the two larger “fonts” creating pools of cold, fresh and of course clean natural water.

The rest times of the year, when the small dams are open and the flow of the water is natural, the beauty of this small canyon is not minimized at all. It is also an opportunity to observe better the corrosive force of the water on the rocks.

To get to this cool small paradise, at first you will drive about 1 km of the route from the Big Papigo to the Little. There, on a sharp right turn you will find a small bridge and the plaza where you will leave your vehicle. You will walk about 150 m on the cobbly path that starts from the north end of the bridge and you will find the fonts.
